Charlotte’s largest amphitheaters open, here’s what you need to know

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte’s largest amphitheaters, PNC Music Pavilion and Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre, are open for the 2022 season. The lineups include country favorites such as Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Keith Urban, as well as popular artists such as Halsey, Backstreet Boys and Lil Baby.

We’ve listed the schedule for each venue below, as well some useful information you need to know before you head out to catch a show.

All events will use mobile entry, which means that your mobile device will be used to get into the show. Tickets will not be emailed or available for printing. However, for previously scheduled shows where you selected print at home or mail, your tickets will be honored accordingly.

Pro tips: If you’ve purchased tickets for a group and some people in the group plan to come separately, you can transfer the tickets directly by using the Live Nation app. Also, before entering the gate, increase the brightness of your phone screen to help with scanning. Click here for more information on mobile ticketing.

You can also keep your cash at home. All points of sale at the venue will be cashless — only credit or debit cards will be accepted.

To help reduce staff contact with fans’ belongings, only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags will be allowed in the venues. Tote bags can be no larger than 12-by-6-by-12 inches and clutch bags cannot be bigger than 4.5-by-6.5 inches.

Some artists may require additional safety protocols, which are subject to change, so check the specific event page closer to the event date for the latest information. Ticket purchasers will also receive direct emails with important information leading up to the show.
